A wonderful character cottage, refurbished in a charming rustic style, offering a breath-taking holiday venue. This is a real home from home which combines coastal themes along with a cosy atmosphere both inside and outside, making it an ideal destination any time of the year.

Spectacular sea views are assured when staying in this former lighthouse keeper’s cottage. This is a truly unique place to stay where a group of six will experience unrivalled comfort when exploring the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park. Some of Wales’ most beautiful beaches can be found a short drive away and, naturally, the Pembrokeshire Coast Path runs directly past the property and offers 186 miles of coastal scenery, dramatic seascapes and clifftop walking routes. Wake up each morning to experience the swell of the sea and views of Skokholm Island in the distance.

 

A charming place that has been refurbished to a contemporary style yet still retains that rustic effect, this property is welcoming from the moment you arrive. The farmhouse-style kitchen is complete with a warming Aga, a delightfully cosy addition throughout colder months. Similarly, the lounge is complete with a wood burner and comfortable sofas which create a homely space to unwind in on cool evenings. During sunnier weather, the generous terrace sits beside the novelty of the old lighthouse, a perfect place to dine alfresco and take in that fresh sea air, before heading back indoors to find three cosy double bedrooms.

 

Discover rock pools and fascinating birdlife at the nearby Dale Beach (3 miles), a sheltered shingle spot with a pub and restaurant within close reach, or follow the coast along to Marloe Sands (4 miles) which is considered one of South Wales’ most beautiful beaches. Take a day trip to St Davids (23 miles), the UK’s smallest city, to visit its beautiful cathedral or immerse yourself in medieval history when visiting Pembroke (19.5 miles). Glorious beaches including Freshwater East (23 miles) and Barafundle Bay (26.5 miles) are also just a car journey away.

What a memorable place to stay with a Lighthouse at bottom of the back patio. Views are stunning and field just outside gate to exercise our dog or drop onto coastal path just outside front door and walk down to Mill Bay to take dog for a swim. If you love cooking theres so much equipment you do not need to take any of your own and the warmth of AGRead moreA is comforting after a swim in the sea or when its fresh outside. Very homely and comfortable at the edge of Pembrokeshire. We loved it . Hide

Wonderful cottage and so well-equipped. The Aga was brilliant and warmed the downstairs really well. Lovely up-cycled furniture and comfy sofa. Amazing views all around and great outdoor space. Peaceful unless the fog comes in - just take ear-plugs in case! A really lovely place to stay. Food at Coco's in Dale was amazing and the pub was good too.
